Catastrophic Wildfire Reduction Strategy Report

Following the devastating 2012 fire season, Governor Gary Herbert charged Agriculture Commissioner Blackham with the task of developing a cooperative strategy to reduce the size, intensity and frequency of catastrophic fires in Utah. A Central Steering Committee comprised of the leaders of Utah’s federal, state and local land management agencies devised a strategy to answer the Governor’s charge.

The committee continues to meet.  Its phase I final report is offered here.
